Humanity Or Property

You might be just one more book away

I've just bought a book on English grammar to celebrate World Book Day

I enjoy reading books on English grammar and have bought scores of such books. I even thought I had enough and the bookstore seemed no longer attractive - I used to be a regular visitor there. 

The fact that I've got enough grammar books, however, doesn't mean I don't need to learn more grammar. I know there's still confusion, or rather, I know there's still something I don't really know…

Adverbs and adjectives

As adjectives describe or modify nouns, the adverbs describe or modify verbs, adjectives or other adverbs. The adverb is placed after the verb it modifies. The adverbs are sometimes used to strengthen or weaken the adjectives. Some adverbs or adverbial expressions that tell us about the speaker's viewpoint or opinion about an action,  or make some comment on the action.

The Big World Vs. Little Bunny

Hiya, folks!

These illustrations inspired me to share some principles I believe in. I'm definitely the last person to give advice on how to deal with your problems and/or everyday situations; especially the ones when you feel like even your pinkie toe is onto you. It decides to stub itself like nobody's business. You swear, try to walk it off and you trip and go down pretty hard. Did I perfectly illustrate my point…
